(Pocket-lint) – As if you needed another app for posting stories, TikTok has experimented with the format through a new feature it’s testing called TikTok Stories. Not all users have access to TikTok Stories yet. If you’re curious about the feature or are lucky enough to take part in its pilot test, here’s everything you need to know about TikTok Stories, including how it works.
What are TikTok Stories?
Many social media sites, including Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram, allow you to post stories to your profile which are automatically deleted after 24 hours. TikTok is now offering the same feature to some of its users. If you share a story on TikTok, you’ll be able to see who viewed it in a separate tab next to the comments section. A blue ring will also appear around your profile picture, letting other users know they can tap to view your stories. They can also react and comment publicly, which will appear on the story itself.
How do TikTok stories work?
If you don’t have access to TikTok Stories yet, you won’t be able to post stories and you won’t be able to see stories that users have shared.
Create TikTok Stories
When you create a new story, you can add captions, music, and text. And they last 24 hours before disappearing for good.
- Open the latest version of the TikTok mobile app.
- Tap the “Publish” button at the bottom center of the navigation bar.
- From there, scroll down to a camera mode.
- Make sure you have selected “Quick” under the pink record button.
- Record a video on the spot or upload one from your camera roll.
- Then edit your story.
- Videos in stories have the same creation options as normal TikTok videos.
- Tap the “Post to Story” upload icon to add it to your story.
View TikTok Stories
To see someone’s story, go to their profile, and if their photo has a blue circle around it, you can tap on it to see what they’ve shared.
Stories are also displayed on the left side of the screen. As a viewer, you can react and even comment on Stories.

When will TikTok Stories be available?
TikTok is still testing TikTok Stories among an undisclosed group of users. It’s unclear how widespread the test is, and the company hasn’t said when the feature will officially launch.
TikTok told The Verge last August that it is always thinking of new ways to bring value to the community and enrich the TikTok experience, and that it is experimenting with ways to “give creators to bring their creative ideas to life”. In February 2022, the company provided an update – telling TechCrunch: “Currently, we are expanding a pilot test, which provides creators with additional formats to bring their creative ideas to life for the TikTok community.”
